karl rove, who's essentially an nra spokesman. he went on sunday morning tv and he actually got confused. he thought he was on fox, so he started spewing a bunch of falsehoods and he got slapped back in the cheap seats, when it was pointed out, you can't transfer stuff in the family, and national registry, which there's no such thing as that. but people should watch that. it gives you an example of the level to which they will go to. if they have $25 million, as governor dean can tell you, which is funded by gun manufacturers. they'll crank out more. and he also makes a very good point. there's a lot of hunters in vermont. most people don't realize that. it's a great outdoor state. and the average hunter is fine with crazy people not being able to buy guns or felons not being able to buy guns. that's not what they're going to get told. you can see what carl was doing when he was there, acting on behalf of the nra with a sunday morning show with jordan stephanopoulos. thank god he was confused and thought he was on fox and they slapped him back. that happens sometimes. >> governo
between sarah palin and karl rove. sarah palin said why doesn't karl rove run for office in texas if he is so smart. karl rove said if i did i would at least complete my term. john boehner says marriage should still be between one man and one woman. and rob corker said it's time for republicans to start accepting the need for new revenue, and close some tax loopholes, but john boehner says even that is off the charts. he will not accept any talk about new revenue, and with that we'll talk sports with cindy boren, and keystone pipeline with the sierra club, all of that coming up here right on current tv. billy zane stars in barabbas. coming in march to reelz. to find reelz in your area, go to reelz.com billy zane stars in barabbas. coming in march to reelz. to find reelz in your area, go to reelz.com this show is about analyzing criticizing, and holding policy to the fire. are you encouraged by what you heard the president say the other night? is this personal or is it political? a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i am given to doing anyway. staying in tou
. >> chris: let me ask you about that. karl rove called the conservative victory project to try to get into the the primaries to make sure there are more electable republicans. congressman you are about to start your own super pac to promote electable candidates in republican primaries. have any problem with that. first of all, why do you think that is wrong? >> i think the definition of electable is what we are debating here and you you look at who has been winning elections. it has been interesting exciting young inne energetic e like ted cruz and marco rubio and if you apply the establishment litmus test which tends to be biased for people already in office you will not get the new energy. remember, karl rove supported arlen specter as far back as 2004 against pat toomey because the logic wasn't can't possibly win. arlen specter flipped parties to become the 60th vote for obama care. we need to be careful about what it means to be electable. certainly the tea party doesn't bat a thousand but at least we are winning elections and bringing new people into the party and not in a positi
is homophobic. i think he's a calculating non-big got who used bigotry to get votes. same with karl rove, now coming out of the closet. we know his adopted father is believed to have been gay. what's worse exploying the big gory of others to increase your own power or being a big got? >> it's all calculations. this topic relates back to the gun topic congress can't get it passed while americans die because it's a political calculation. john: i love that you go back to the gun topic lee. brilliant. >> i think it's worse to be calculating about it, but that's the reason the tide is turning is because of that calculation because more americans are coming onboard with gay rights and the republican party are learning that homophobic stances don't fly with post americans. >> if the gop embraces most americans, where are the haters going to go? >> you just join the tea party i guess. i feel like the republican party right now is me when i was 13 years old and listening to michael jackson's man in the mirror. i knew i had to make a change. rob portman came out like pro gay marriage, did you not say a
wedding rings and all other parts of straight life. the karl rove winning elections and the abolitionists wing are in for a prolonged situation. 2014 will be tough, but once these two gangs, the palin and rove crowds, have to meet again in 2016, it's not going to be pretty and sure as hell isn't going to be a marriage and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, welcome to "the ed show." i'm michael eric dyson. elizabeth warren takes a stand for working class americans. michele bachmann has seen the light on infrastructure and might be getting off the appalachain trail and heading back to washington and a southern pastor makes a radical stand for justice. but tonight, we start with the tenth anniversary of the ed show. let's get to work. the shock and awe campaign was launched against -- a decade later, the forces behind with trying to revise that history. today, donald rumsfeld tweeted ten years ago, the long, difficult work of liberating 25 million iraqis deserve our respect and appreciation. put aside for the mome
. >> there was karl rove on this week saying he can see a republican nominee the next republican nominee sporting gay marriage. so this whole -- whether you're talking about immigration or gay rights, the whole thing has completely surpassed the rush limbaughs and fox newses of the world. they're waging this losing battle. if you listen to rush, they're not trying anymore. the poll numbers last week on gay marriage were just kind of amazing compared to ten years ago. and you know, they can see the writing on the wall. this is a social movement and it's come and gone, basically. this issue has basically been put to rest. and it is yet another key social issue that the conservative movement has completely lost. >> no amount of oxycontin will help that goal. >> stephanie: some may try. here's the moment you were talking about, karl rove on abc. >> can you imagine the next republican candidate saying flat out i'm for gay marriage? >> i could. >> stephanie: yikes. that's when, as you pointed out, he was talking about -- serious karl rove discussing the politics of the easter egg roll. >> that was on fox o
are you? caller: good, good. that article is just about what i'm thinking of. karl rove, we have got to get rid of him. right now in n our state, we are going to start a coalition in the state party, and we have different people that have come in, organizations, and one of values he faith and organization. they want people of faith -- and as a christian, i want to be a part of this. but one thing the republican party has to do, we want to stay with our principles that we have on our republican platform, and we do not want karl rove to tell us that social issues do not matter in society. we are very distrustful of the republican party. it's hard for me to back the republican party when one of our own is -- as i think you probably know -- just came out saying he's going to change his mind on this marriage thing. the republican party has to stay with the principles of our platform, and it's the people that run -- they don't like our platform, they need to move over to the democratic platform. i think karl rove is just going to hurt our party. host: craig is calling in on the republican
quote . . . bravo senator. karl rove said that he could imagine a 2016 gop candidate in favor of gay marriage. wow. but will the supreme court's decision bring ground breaking change. joining me to discuss this is our political friend christine pelosi, chair of the california democratic party women's caucus, and she shares the party platform when they adopted marriage equality. what is at steak? >> most immediately at steak are the 18,000 same-sex couples which got married. so what the court could do is rule narrowly on behalf of those california couples and say look, you got married because the supreme court recognized the constitutional right to marry in california, we find those marriages to be valid, we are throwing out prop 8. so the most narrow victory would be a victory for the 18,000 same-sex couples. more broodly of course the court could recognize the constitutional right to marry in the 14th amendment, and it's prohibition against denying liberty rights and demanding equal protection. >> michael: is the narrow victory a victory? just the 18,000 cases? >
backed by karl rove and former executives from sun micro systems is designed to give republican systems a leg up where many struggled last cycle. >> i want to be careful when i say this. karl rove ran through how much money last year? >> a lot. >> how much? >> tens of millions. >> no. over hundreds of millions. >> goodness gracious. >> i'm not saying karl should be set on the sidelines. but, man, he saw nothing coming. nothing. in fact, he was still sound like the boy in the plastic bubble like late into the evening on election night. still not knowing about -- >> with all of that money, had the worst record than the new york mets. >> he had a terrible record. again, i'm not knocking him, but he is the only guy we have? i mean, even people extraordinarily close to george w. bush said karl had his own numbers. you know? you never knew what you were getting with karl. is this the only guy that our millionaires and billionaires want to give money to? look. i love karl. give karl some money, but we need some other people. >> who you got? >> crossroads had 1.2% success rate. i don't know. so
the evidence. they browbeat people. they would karl rove as their political hench men. the vote was scheduled on the eve of the elections deliberately. i don't want to let democrats off the hook. 29 senate democrats voted to authorize the use of force. some apologized later like john kerry. some brave people came out against it as you showed. barbara boxer, dick durbin, paul wellstone, but there is a tendency among democrats that really worries me. it's to act as though maybe their patriotism is possibly going to be called into question and they're always appeasing these bullies who question their very americanness and we saw that over and over at 9/11 and particularly in the run-up to war. it was a little bit frightening to be against the war as i was. we weren't really singled out and ridiculed, but we were right. they will go down in history as having done the wrong thing. it requires a lot of vigilance to make sure nothing like that happens again. >> given what the congresswoman said earlier, are we still at risk despite their bold and creative witness of a march to war of this magnitude
when jeb bush tried to do that with immigration, look at the pushback that he got. and today karl rove wrote a piece in "the wall street journal." he said this. "understanding that today's technology has the shelf life of a banana, silicon valley republicans are working to modernize the gop's voter file in advance of next year's midterm." he didn't right anything about modernizing the gop policies, just their list of voters. >> well, this is going to be their problem, too. because the tea party element is that they don't think strategically. otherwise, they would have control of the senate right now. they lost colorado, denver, nevada, and they are not thinking strategically and really don't care if the republican wins so much as whether the republican keeps to their very hardcore view of issues like immigration. and like abortion and other things like that. but the party -- when you you talked about abortion, the party has a lot more repairing to do. there are a lot of women who are anti-abortion. it was a contraception argument. the insults that came from members of the party and the
, what nia mentioned, karl rove running against marriage equality provoked democrats into more of a spirited defense of it and more alignment with it, because rove kind of forced the issue. >> i mean remember, in 2004 in states like ohio, it was such a divisive issue, same sex marriage, you had people very protective on one hand and scared on the other. over four years, what we have had in terms of political conversation is a number of people that had personal experiences with gay members of the family or communities, so it is affecting people not just in democratic circles but republican circles. rob portman this past week, his son is gay, that effected him. we had a number of top conservative donors in the tri-state area that have become devoted to the gay rights cause in part because of family members and are bank rolling candidates on that issue. that as much as anything else has been a huge boost to the lbgt movement. >> listen to john boehner that insists no matter how many relatives he has who may want marriage equality, he will never go there. listen to this. >> can you
tradition. should that have been cut too? karl rove weighs in. bill: doesn't look like spring, does it. heather: not at all. bill: not here. where this massive pileup happened on the highway. we'll tell you how they made out there. heather: i hear they're suing the groundhog because of that. and investigating now underway if syria, seriously, is using chemical weapons or has but some law make he is -- lawmakers here say it is clear they did. president obama says this would be a game-changer. general jack keane is here with his take on this growing crisis. >> you have a government that we believe and we have solid information, by the way the international community believes this, has chemical weapons. has put them in a position to be used on short notice, and i believe, there's a high probability has been used with that whole body over the last two years. hey, our salads. [ bop ] [ bop ] [ bop ] you can do that all you want, i don't like v8 juice. [ male announcer ] how about v8 v-fusion. a full serving of vegetables, a full serving of fruit. but what you taste is the fruit. so even you
at what karl rove is doing. they are really attempting to stop that -- to run against that kind of thing, but then look at what happened at cpac. here comes sarah palin. >> caller: they created these people. >> hal: that's right. >> caller: and mitch mcconnell you know -- saying that they had rand paul and rubio, and showing off that they had rand paul, and that democrats have henry. and yeah i'm thinking to myself, yeah, we have the adult. we have these crazy young ones who i wouldn't trust the last time we met these people -- or the last time that these young ones -- they crashed our house pretty much, and now they want us to know their crazy young kids the keys to drive the car back to the house. >> hal: i totally hear where you are coming from. they seem to think every time that this is a market issue. it was this puffed up artificial astroturf for what was effectively the moral majority same crowd he saw pushing through the agenda and they just switched back and forth depending on who you were talking to at the time. but the essence of these two groups, they fuse
the bus in public, right. >> oh, yeah. it's unbelievable. >> bill: sarah palin and karl rove, rand paul and marco rubio john mccain calling them whacko birds. >> yeah, i feel like he is the guy at then of scooby doo -- if it wasn't for those darn kids. it's not just enough to hate government. when you elect folks to government that hate government they destroy it. you would never put somebody as a ceo of a company who hated the company. >> bill: the other thing they came without a report this week which some people call the autopsy, which i love, which autopsies are performed on cold dead bodies that you know are not coming back from the grave. >> yes. >> bill: and they say we need to be the party of outreach. and the very next day reince priebus says we are the party that believes that marriage is between one man and one woman only. when 81% of the voters support marriage equality. so they are not the party of outreach. >> absolutely not. i saw this in the republican party in the '90s when i was rap. there was a lot of lip service reaching out to young folks, but th
. >> to that point, what do you think about karl rove's initiative to find strong gop candidates and to avoid some candidates whose statements or positions have led to their defeat? do you think that's a good idea? >> um, you know, we've had i don't know how many groups that are outside groups, 527s that are and have been in the business of trying to pick winners in primaries. you know, i appreciate the first amendment. i think any person in america that wants to file for a 527 or they want to organize a group to help a particular candidate in a primary should be able to do it. i'm not against it. i will tell you as far as the rnc is concerned, however, we don't pick winners and losers in primaries. it's just not something that we do can. by rule, in fact, it's barred. and so it's a business that we're not in. so it's also not our prerogative to tell other people what they can and cannot do as far as exercising their first amendment right to get involved. >> if you could create the ideal presidential candidate for your party for the next election cycle based on qualities and the appeal that pollin
